EXCLUSIVE: Rugby World Cup-winning coach Jake White likes what he's seen from Rassie Erasmus, saying the Springboks coach is ticking the box of "winning games against big nations".
World Cup-winning coach Jake White would consider any opportunity to coach a top-tier contender such as the Wallabies, but says he can't understand the crisis narrative currently emanating out of Australia.
Last week not a single Springbok made our team of the week following their defeat at the hands of the Wallabies in Brisbane. This week, however, there are South Africans sprinkled all over after their courageous victory over the All Blacks.
Rugby Australia will not take any action against a fan that was involved in a physical altercation with Wallabies flanker Lukhan Tui following their loss 23-19 loss to the Pumas on Saturday night.
How did the Springboks manage to beat the All Blacks with just 25 percent possession? Surely the Wallabies' experiment with Kurtley Beale at No.10 is at an end? Meanwhile, Mario Ledesma is in the same sweet spot Michael Cheika occupied in 2015.
As the Wallabies slip to a demoralising seventh in the world rankings, the need for a change in direction has never been clearer. These lost Wallabies souls need revitalising, the time to act is now -- Greg Growden writes.
